Argentinian art

There are fantastic, dynamic sculptures in the streets of Buenos Aires.

We visited the Museo Bella Artes, Buenos Aires' museum of Fine Arts. A wonderful & varied collection housed in a spacious & cool building that was a sanctuary from the searing heat outside.

The museum was holding a special exhibition of Emilio Pettorutti's art. He was a new discovery for me- what a find! I was really impressed by his graphic, almost cubist renditions of harlequins & musicians.

This is some of the more avant garde artwork from the gallery & the streets of Buenos Aires.

This terrific bronze was keeping guard outside the main military headquarters of the city (below where real soldiers guard the entrance)

More military might was on show at the Museo de Armas de la NaciĆ³n.
